Set in the heart of Whitby, this delightful hideaway is a romantic bolthole for couples looking for a quiet seaside getaway. Offering cosy accommodation for up to two guests, the property has been stylishly updated while retaining plenty of original character, with timber-beamed ceilings, wooden panelling, elegant decor and a charming courtyard to unwind in. Just metres away from the bustling Church Street with its friendly pubs, restaurants and tearooms, this beautifully furnished, sympathetically updated home is an ideal holiday base for discovering a wonderful part of the glorious North Yorkshire coast.

A flight of external steps leads up to the property, offering a fantastic view over the town when you get to the top. Inside, the welcoming and characterful lounge/diner has wooden beams, comfortable seating and a Smart TV so you can snuggle up in the evening to watch a favourite film. There’s a relaxing dining area by the window, perfect for sharing a romantic meal which you can rustle up in the light, beautifully equipped kitchen. Stairs lead up to a galleried dressing room with stylish built-in wardrobes, and then a step down takes you into the bright and cosy king-size bedroom which has a low sloping ceiling. Outside, the cheerful enclosed sun terrace is a charming spot for dining alfresco, with a few steps leading down to a lovely ornamental garden offering fabulous views across Whitby.

The property lies east of the River Esk, with local attractions including the Captain Cook Memorial Museum and the 199 Steps leading up to Whitby Abbey. Crossing the river, the western half of Whitby is home to the Whalebone Arch and the beautiful beach, along with plenty of great places to eat and drink. Heading inland, you can spend a day exploring the beautiful North York Moors National Park (3 miles).

Fantastic quaint and quirky little cottage, great location ( quite a few steps up to cottage so wouldnt recommend if you have any walking issues) otherwise it has everything you could need. Very clean, comfortable and warm. Only slight downside is bathroom is downstairs

The cottage was very clean, comfortable and is in a perfect location up a small alley off church street and close to the 199 steps. It has a lovely courtyard with seating outside. It is a small cottage but more than adequate for a couple. It has everything you need. The bed is very comfy. We would recommend a stay.

This property was perfect for my daughter and me. We had the best time. Great location, great facilities. The only thing j would say is there are a lot of steps to get to the property but this wasn't a problem for us. Xxx
